Continuing Students

Studying abroad

Studying abroad can be a life-changing experience, in which you encounter the world and yourself, and meet incredible people who will remain your dearest friends and colleagues, all while receiving an education in a world-class university.  There are several kids of scholarships available to support post-graduate study, internationally and within Australia. The below is an indicative list only and not comprehensive.

Remember, only 23 people applied for the Rhodes in 2013. Many people who are eligible for these scholarships don’t apply because they make assumptions about what committees are looking for and their own abilities.
